It is a blend of pot and column distilled rum.

The finish continues this pleasant warmth, with turmeric, oaky tannins, and lemon zest.

Knowledge Bar

Though the name might be found unusual, it is a reference to the very beginnings of rum. The work on sugar plantations was incredibly hard and was exacerbated by the hot climate; plantation owners used African slaves to meet their labour requirements with the first ship arriving in 1505. A drink fermented from sugar which was known as ‘kill devil’ is referred to in Barbados in 1647, before any written mention of rum (which also came from Barbados) in 1688. The naming of ‘Kill Devil’ may be a little more poignant than one might first think. Afterwards, this name also found popularity later as the spirit was drunk to combat scurvy, another ‘devil’ of sorts.
